Somewhere I picked up the acronym PDI — Personally Derived Information — and I kinda like it. Given enough information deriving from a personal interaction, you end up knowing something about a person, and they can become identifiable.

Clear distinction for PII and strictlly-non-PII is apparently going into history. What is especially interesting is that - perhaps non-PII data today, might become PII tomorrow (after more is known, research is made, regulations are changed...)...
That's why I'm not so much concerned with distilling a strict and static list of PIIs.
But I would be happy to help with the document.
